16 year-old Sam Kanizay, was soaking his sore legs in the ocean after playing football when minutes later his feet and legs were pouring with blood:
Doctors and medical experts were baffled and couldn’t explain the strange injuries.
Marine expert Michael Brown told Channel Seven’s Sunrise program, “I’ve been doing this for coming on 20 years now and I’ve never seen anything like this.”
Since no one knew how the teenager’s mysterious injuries were caused, Sam’s Father, Jarrod Kanizay decided it was up to him to investigate.
The next evening, he went back to the beach with a fishing net and a piece of meat where he caught hundreds of tiny creature that he suspected were responsible.
Mr Kanizay told Daily Mail Australia:
“I caught some bugs overnight over in the bay. I’ve put meat into a net and they’ve grabbed on to that like no tomorrow.
“We’ve brought them home and they’ve just attached themselves to this meat. They’ve sucked the life out of it – all the blood.
“They’re mite type creatures. One would assume these are the bugs that have grabbed on to him in their thousands.
“What is really clear is these little things really love meat.”
Sam’s injury “fascinated” the Sandringham Hospital and is set for a speedy recovery, “Sam is a stoic kid, so he will be fine”, said Mr Kanizay.
